Prufrockstar (965) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2013
2013 bottle. Pour is murky dark caramel with no head (as expected). Aroma promises a sweet treat. Brown sugar, molasses, caramel, dates, honey, vanilla, bourbon, and that familiar HOTD Fred. Taste: Over the top sweet as expected (and welcome) with a nice bitterness at the end to keep it from being cloying. Light oxidation. Alcohol burn present in the finish, keeping nicely with the bourbon. Palate: Flat, thick, slick, syrupy. Overall: Even completely flat, this is pretty tasty. As I was in the mood tonight for something between bourbon, port, and beer, this hits the spot. Would love to try this when the carbonation is on.

Bottle from waltersrj...thanks man! Aroma and flavor really, really reminds me of flat Cherry Adam. I love the taste, yet abhor these carbonation issues that HotD has. Ok beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radagast83 (4656) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2013
12oz bottle, consumed directly after the regular Hair of the Dog Fred from the Wood. Slightly cloudy orange color. Aroma was oak notes, booze was nicely mellowed in this one, rounded edges around the sharpness found in regular Fred. Bourbon notes, oak, light vanilla. Quite an enjoyable brew to consume.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown color without much head. Strong bourbon flavors overpower a little.

2013. Fruity, sweet bourbon, oak, plums. Tastes like an English barleywine underneath, and that base blends perfectly with the other flavors present. Viscous. Quite good; need more!

Murky almost still pour, amber gold. No head. Nose is rich with lots of Bourbon and wood with some sharp notes. Very rich and bourbony flavor. Toffee and caramel all over with some toasted alone and tannic wood. Very full and rich plate with very low carbonation.

2013 bottle. Pours a murky dark orange color with absolutely no head. Aromas are bourbon, vanilla, oak, sweet caramel, and raisins. Taste starts with sweet caramel, plums and raisins but is quickly overpowered by the bourbon barrel. Huge vanilla and oak with a good amount of actual bourbon. Finish is boozy with some hot alcohol. Thick body that is pretty chewy and syrupy. No carbonation. This is kind of a mess. Did I open this too early?
